About Me (hide/show)

2nd year M.S. student studying Statistics at University of Washington. Graduated from University of California, Berkeley with High Distinction in General Scholarship (BA in Computer Science).

Currently doing research related to Computational Health/Biology as a part of Professor Su-In Lee's Lab. I'm interested in machine learning as well as probabilistic modelling for high-impact societal applications.

Curriculum Vitae: Link.

Hobbies: I used to breakdance and hope to get back into it. I like video games, reading, and love listening to music.
